Haiku Friday: Things to do outside

The sun has come out in Minnesota. It probably won't snow anymore. Every morning the streets fill up with people on bikes-- when you get the warm weather here, you make the most of it!

The trees are flowering, too, which is a wonder to behold. I have a crabapple tree behind the house that normally is nothing much to look at, except right now-- and right now it is glorious, covered in white flowers.

Since everyone is getting outside while the getting is good, let's haiku about that this week: all the great things that await us in the beauty of the spring and summer.

Here, I will go first:

Me and Lego Guy
Hanging out in the sunshine
Yeah... he fell asleep.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable formula and have some fun!

I can't believe it,
Wow, I'm wearing no jacket.
Finally...spring...(and) warmth!

Wild dandelions,
violets, strawberries. My
eyes drink in the colors.
My dandelions
Are a constant source of peace,
Both yellow and white.
Yellow ball arcs high
Furry flash zooms down the dock
Leap... splash! Her tail wags.
Starting a veggie
garden, a community
plot. Let's see what grows.
